2019 Traineeship

Building with earth, straw, wood and manure

This year we offer a series of week-long trainings to understand and build ecological houses with local and natural materials.

These 5 days-long trainings are suitable for both amateurs and professionals involved in construction and architectural design.

Tezekevleri team is offering 3 week-long training on 3 different topics for people who want to increase their skills in plastering, wood working or floor making. In each training, different techniques will be seen according to the needs. Other training weeks might be opened on other subjects such as tadelakt, ceiling, slip-straw if the demand increases.

Participation to these training weeks is free, however, support for the accommodation (food, water, electricity) is demanded. Every day, interns will be working 6 hours with the team.

For people that are interested by a longer stay and learning better the techniques we are using, volunteering is also proposed. As a volunteer, you will get to learn better on the technique and be more independent to make your own work.
